Using paint rollers can be the quickest method to cover most exterior surfaces, although you may need to use a brush to cover heavy areas of pebbledash. By attaching an extension handle to your roller this will enable you to tackle most of the paint-work from the ground. One method is to start rolling at the top right corner of your first wall, if you are left handed start at the left side first. Now gradually work your way across the wall until completed.
